I need help on deciding the finish to choose. I'd like to use all gold hardware (including the pickup rings) with a tremolo and attach a full rosewood Vortex neck to it. I lean more to a red/orange finish. if anyone has images of builds with gold hardware and a figured maple top for inspiration please drop it here. Thanks

The image attached here is my mothers choice of finish. Although it would look killer, its not my style, if anything I would want something opposite that color.

Color choice is entirely subjective, but in my mind, gold is warm and goes best with other warm colors (red, orange, yellow, brown).

FWIW, that blue fade looks amazing, but I'd want chrome hardware in that case.

that's a good look but its a bit muted or maybe its just the camera

Of Warmoth's red-ish finishes I think "fire burst" is my favorite for flame/quilt maple tops and it's a good color for gold hardware.

obv I wish I'd thought out the gold for my trem, even with the chrome bridge, I'm pretty chuffed with how these colors went with gold. HW. I've got a quilt maple on order also, not decided on finish or parts colors yet.

I have to agree.  That is stunning.  It would look fantastic with gold hardware (and I think it would pop more than the one I posted above).

Attaching fire burst image here (from the twitter link).

Chrome / Black / Black chrome hardware only on those, but let's start with a PRS-style Dragon Breath Glow on my now sold VIP:
